The gigantic creature stepped out of the undergrowth, and roared. Its giant mouth splitting open like the petals of a beautiful red flower, lined with backwards facing teeth. It closed its mouth and turned its armoured vision ridges to look at them.

"Ooh! I think it's got holographic vision. Take a note would you?"

"Barry. I wish I'd never stepped on-board the Beagle. I wish you'd never asked me to follow evolution across the galaxy! Bugger this!"
